Okavango Horse Safaris
Okavango Horse Safaris are owned and run by Barney and PJ Bestelink ,who have been keeping horses in the Okavango Delta for more than ten years. They are riding safari specialists and expert guides in this remote central section of the Delta.
Okavango Horse Safaris' trips last for five or ten days, and you can expect to spend between four to six hours per day in the saddle. The riding safaris are restricted to a maximum of eight guests and the itinerary can be either a combination of one base and one or two fly camps. Base camp has comfortable tents with private facilities, while the fly camps have dome tents or simply bedrolls beneath mosquito nets. Expect to have saddlebag breakfasts and picnic lunches during the day's ride.
Riding safaris allow you to get so much closer to the wildlife than in a vehicle, and you will be able to appreciate the sights and sounds of the amazing delta landscape. Okavango Horse Safaris' routes cross varying terrains, including grassland savannah and seasonally flooded plains dotted with palm islands and mopane forests. The game trails you follow might possibly be the same routes as herds of elephant or buffalo, and you may even get the opportunity to gallop alongside giraffe. Non-riding participants are welcome, as Okavango Horse Safaris also offers safari time spent on game drives, bird walks, swimming or just relaxing around the camp.
